Creating your first monitor

Test project configuration

In order to create a monitor, you need to have some tests ready inside a project. For further information on how to create a project or adding tests to a project, please refer to projects section and the Test Cases section in this tutorial.

Configure the monitor

Once you set up a test project and added test cases to the project you may create a new monitor. Simply click on the monitors menu item

Now click on the "Add monitor" button and fill in the monitor name in the dialog box that appears. fill also the name of the test project you created in the first dialog box and the type of monitor (Web or Mobile) in the second dialog box.
